Wesleyan University at Williams College (Friday, Jan. 4th at 7 p.m.): The Ephs remain the team to beat in New England, but if they are going to continue their recent success, they must find ways to outlast their upcoming opponents, including Wesleyan on Friday evening. PREDICTION: Williams College 

Southern Vermont at Dean College (Saturday, Jan. 5th at 1 p.m.): The Mountaineers head into the second half of their 2018-19 schedule with some momentum – they have won five-straight meetings dating back to early December. SVC currently has six players on its roster, including Donnell Frayer Jr., who are averaging 10 points or more through 10 games this season. PREDICTION: So. Vermont 

Worcester State at Salem State (Saturday, Jan. 5th at 1 p.m.): The Lancers are flying under the radar at 7-6 overall, but will need to play their best basketball against a Vikings squad, which capped the month of December with a trio of wins, including a 114-112 double-overtime win against Colby-Sawyer. PREDICTION: Salem State 

WPI at Babson College (Saturday, Jan. 5th at 2 p.m.): Jack Coolahan‘s late triple on Wednesday evening highlighted his team’s exciting conference win over Springfield College. The win should provide the spark these Beavers need heading into another important conference clash with the Engineers, who have dropped three-straight. PREDICTION: Babson College 

Gordon College at Nichols College (Saturday, Jan. 5th at 3 p.m.): This game could come down to free throws, along with second and third opportunities on offense. Both teams play great defense, too. We think whoever wins this contest will win by at least two or three points – maybe five. PREDICTION: Nichols College

Middlebury College at Conn. College (Friday, Jan. 4th at 7 p.m.): Middlebury enters tonight’s clash with a ton of momentum, thanks to Maya Davis, who has enjoyed her best season with the Panthers by averaging career-highs in points per game (13.1) and rebounds per game (7.7). Look for the Milton native to lead the Panthers to an important conference win this evening. PREDICTION: Middlebury College 

Roger Williams at Endicott College (Saturday, Jan. 5th at 1 p.m.): The Gulls scored an important conference win on Thursday over Western New England, so expect that momentum to continue on Saturday in the battle of the birds. Endicott’s Emily Pratt has enjoyed a very successful junior season and should certainly be a player to watch in this match-up. PREDICTION: Endicott College

MIT at Smith College (Saturday, Jan. 5th at 2 p.m.): MIT ended the month of December with some momentum, thanks to a recent win over TCNJ. Can they continue their current momentum against Lauren Bondi and the Smith Pioneers on Saturday? PREDICTION: Smith College

Bowdoin College at Tufts University (Saturday, Jan. 5th at 3 p.m.): This could be a preview of the 2018 NESCAC Championship. Both Bowdoin and Tufts enter the second half of the season undefeated, along with aspirations of continuing their momentum over the next few weeks and months. PREDICTION: Tufts University 

Hamilton College at Trinity College (Sunday, Jan. 6th at 2 p.m.): Two days after Trinity hosts Amherst College, the Bantams will attempt to wrap-up the weekend with at least one win, possibly two wins when they host Hamilton. This is an important game for both teams, who look to remain in the hunt for a NESCAC crown. PREDICTION: Trinity College
